Warehouse Group Ltd: Takeover Speculation Resurfaces

I am going to speculate on some speculation in Businessday this morning that the appointment of Ted van Arkel as an independent director of The Warehouse Group Ltd [WHS.NZX] means the sale of the company is back on the table.

Van Arkel has a long history and ties to retail in both New Zealand and Australia and has a hard nosed reputation both as a former managing director of Progressive Enterprises, owned by Woolworths Ltd [WOW.ASX] and as an independent director of multiple boards and chairman of Restaurant Brands Ltd [RBD.NZX] and Charlie's Group Ltd [CHA.NZX] means the sale of the company is back on the table.
